My wife and I are going to England from Aug to December.  We will be taking 3 or 4 large suitcases plus 2 smaller ones.  We will fly into London on Aug 12 and we would like to ship (via UPS kind of service)  the 4 large suitcases from London (at or near Heathrow if possble) to a place near Grantham.  We are then going to Scandinavia for about 10 days.  We would like to avoid the cost of storage of the large luggage.
 
Has anyone done something like this?
What companies?
Is there a place near Heathrow where we can ship these on a Sunday?

Most likely the royal post would be the cheapest way to go. There is a post office in terminal 2 of heathrow and the hours are 0900-1300.

Thank you.  That sounds like a perfect solutions.  Now all we have to do is find out if they will post a suitcase. Then of course we will have to figure how to pack in less than 20 KG per bag.  Or I guess we could re pack some once we get there.
 
Thanks again.
